The Bureau will continue to offer local and visiting queers and allies a stimulating selection of books, zines, art, and events, and we look forward to collaborating with The Center on special events and programs.

Our opening art exhibition at The Center will feature the work of Gio Black Peter, to be followed by an exhibition of Rebecca Levi's work in late November, and we’re planning a smart and sexy line-up of events! As always, we welcome your proposals, so please keep 'em coming!
